I agree wi Davie Raeburn it St. Mary's.

Mind you, nae lightbulbs or broken doon boilers ever got fixed cos he was too busy making sawdust in the techy dep't.

Fact: the school dinner ladies never ever used flour for baking. Why should they when the kitchen was next to the techy dep't?

Yon choccy sponge and choccy custard were the bizness tho!!!

No A Granger Either! said...

Ma ain abidin memory i Davie Raeburn (q.v.), apart fi his magic sawdust, wis his jealous guairdin i the mitre fitbaws he kept in his room.
Woe betide the boay wha loast it ower the hoarse's field (usually Boarstal Cummings, by proxy).
